January 2008

I adore the beginning of the new year.
A fresh new start, with the slate wiped clean and the feeling that somehow my life will now become totally organised and free of stress and worry, completely and utterly wonderful in fact. In reality of course I know it will be the usual a mixture of everything!

In the garden there is already a whisper of spring which perhaps explains my optimism. Outside my window as I work the Mahonia is in full bloom and the sweet scent of its acid yellow sprays of flowers, like hundreds of tiny daffodils, is almost intoxicating.

2008 is going to be another busy year for me as my garden has again been selected for the NGS ‘gardens open for charity’ scheme. I am looking forward to seeing some of you here then but in the meantime best wishes and happy gardening in ‘08.
